Get ready for Oxford’s most colourful event of 2024!

OxTrail is a fun and free art trail, where herds of life-sized and mini oxen will be taking over Oxfordshire for the summer.

Whether you’re a life-long local or a new visitor, OxTrail is a new and exciting adventure in celebration of our city of spires and the local community which makes it special.

The life-sized oxen will each be designed by a talented artist, while the mini oxen will be lovingly decorated by local schools and youth groups.

Once the trail is over, the life-sized oxen will be herded together for a final time and auctioned off to graze in their forever homes. The funds raised through the auction will help to fund the life-enhancing care that Sobell House Hospice provides.

Your support matters

Sobell House is there for people from the moment they receive the life-changing news that they have an incurable illness until the end of life.

Our care is provided free of charge, but it’s not without cost. Without the support from people like you, we would not be able to raise the £2 to £3 million that keeps our hospice up and running. Simply put; we can only keep caring because you do.
